What would you like to know? There are several different types that have many different functions.
Taste: The sensation derived from food, as interpreted thru the tongue to brain sensory system.
Flavor: The overall impression combining taste, odor, mouthfeel and trigeminal perception.

I've never heard of the sweeties you mention! I use rice paper on the bottom of various biscuits (cookies) such as macaroons - Is that sort of what you're asking?

No, the paper boychef is refering to is actually edible and can be printed on with edible inks and natural dies. I have used them in some ideation sessions with customers and have actually had menus written out on them and than they were incorporated into the meal as either a flavoring for a soup or added to stock to make a brothy sauce. I have used herb infused, roasted garlic and a caramelized onion. In the case of the herb one you could actually see the herb pieces in the paper. Very cool stuff but expensive. Homar Cantu was working with a natural die company trying to devise a way to put the die into an ink cartrige so it could be used in a laser printer. Dont think they have been succesful yet...

The wafer paper stuff is neutral flavor and can also be used in soup.

Hi Ishbel, good to "see" u again, FYI white rabbits are fabulous sweeties that u can get at the chinese supermarket. Matthews in Dundee has them. They're like milk chews with a coating of rice paper...Bit weird in the mouth at first but very moreish if ur fillings can handle them.

Thanks, Bughut - glad to 'see' you, too!
Unfortunately, my medical condition(s) mean that penny chews are OUT (whether our own or Chinese!)

Arzak in Spain actually got a recipe for a flexible translucent sheet like paper using AGAR.

Any comments?
